GIVEAWAY...beautifully organized

A new year, a fresh start, no more clutter, a more organized you, am I right?
Well, we thought we would help you out a little with a GIVEAWAY.

A binder covered in Jennifer Paganelli's Ann Flower Mural fabric, accented with a bright pink flower...too cute. A vintage metal frame painted a soft blue with a cork insert covered in the lovely Leann in Red also by Jennifer Paganelli. Also comes with three button tacks covered in Libby in Turquoise.

We were tempted to keep these little beauties, but then decided it would be way more fun to give them away.
Items were thoughtfully handmade by Leah, the younger "Fabric Picker"

Sewing Tip of the Month - Choosing the Right Pin

Pins, Pins, and more Pins

Such a small instrument with a very big job to do. How many different pins do you have in your pin cushion? According to the magazine Threads each pin has its own purpose.

Pins and Their Purposes
  • Flat: This pin may be pressed with iron, and is good for handwork because the thread does not get caught on it.
  • Plastic: These are ball-shaped and come in different colors and sizes, very easy to spot laying against fabric. Plastic pins also come in flower shapes which are good for lace, eylet and loose weaves.
  • Glass: Ball-shaped and will not melt when pressed against iron, whereas plastic pins may melt.
  • T-Pin: Used to hold heavy upholstery and outdoor fabrics.
  • Fork: Allows you to pin without lifting fabrics.
  • Glow in the Dark: If you drop the pin, turn the lights out to find it. No more finding them with pain.
  • Tidy: Created to secure doilies, slipcovers to furniture.
  • Pleating: This pin is 1 inch long allowing you to pin out perfect pleats.
  • Twist: This pin is created to hold slipovers and mattress pads in place.
The above information and pictures have been compiled from Threads.

Belly is getting Bigger

My belly is getting bigger and bigger and bigger...seems only right since the little guy is going to be entering this great big world in just a little over a month. It will be such a treat to be blessed with another little boy. In the meantime, while he is quietly warm and cozy in the womb, this momma has to wear something. I couldn't resist the captivating pattern of Anna Maria Horner's Small Gatherings Azalea fabric and decided it would be fitting as a maternity skirt. I used a simple skirt pattern along with some tutorial help from Sew Mommy Sew for the elastic waist band. I love it.
